      Places to see and cab hire

      by almra Online Now Jun 25, 2015 at 12:04 AM

      Hello! I will be having 3 clear days in Kigali and wish to go places around. Akagera game park, Parc National Des Volcans, Nyungwe Mountain Rain Forest are the places I plan to visit. I have no idea about how to reach these places, expenses on hiring a vehicle all the way, any permits required, approx expenses when in these places for hiring a 4wd vehicle or guides. Any safety tips. Been to Kenya and Tanzania, but my first to Rwanda. Will really appreciate any inputs.

      Gym in Kigali

      by vita_fragilis Online Now Dec 10, 2014 at 11:41 PM

      I'm staying four nights in Kigali with a friend and he's keen to go to a gym at least once. I'm struggling to find one or any information on 'dropping in' rather than memberships. (We're staying in Kimihurura).

    • Nakumatt Store in Kigali,Rwanda

      by sharishelton Online Now Jul 16, 2014 at 2:40 PM

      We have been told as new tourists coming in to help at a school and orphanage outside of Kigali, that Nakumatt Store has almost everything one would need? Is this true? Or what place is better? We will be looking for snacks for students, a large multipurpose bowl, dish and clothing soaps, & possibly 2 helmets for riding the mopeds. Thanks for any help you can give. Shari Shelton

      Single Entry Indian Visa for US Citizen

      by lamsterz Online Now Aug 24, 2011 at 6:05 PM

      Hi all,

      I'll be traveling to India (landing in Mumbai) Dec 2-13. I'm based in Goma so it looks like Kigali is the closest location for an Indian Embassy/Consulate.

      Has a US citizen experienced obtaining an Indian visa at the Consulate in Kigali before? What was required (presumably 2 passport photos, application, fee, itinerary, proof of yellow fever vaccination)? How long did it take?

      Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!

    • Locals and explorers in Kigali

      by kutloya Online Now May 25, 2007 at 12:49 AM

      I am planning a trip for 6 days to Kigali in the end of June. I need accomodation advice from the experienced explorers. Staying with locals would be the best for me. How can I reach them?? Do you have any friends living there who can host me? Also I'd like to learn if any of you is planning to be at that time in Kigali. Meeting would be fine.
      Hope to hear from you soon.

      All the best

    • Which hotels iin Kigali?

      by TangoDanzer Online Now May 16, 2006 at 10:50 AM

      My husband and I have just finished a learning guide to Hotel Rwanda and sometimes in April for our web site. We've heard Mr. Rusesabagina speak, and were really looking forward to staying at the Mille Collines, but have read awful things. Hotel Intercon. sounds too international/luxe. Can anybody recommend a hotel that is small, charming, clean, where we can really talk to Rwandans? How about Gorillas or Okapi (Sp?)
      Thanks much.
